    Fantastic rod
    July 22, 2019
    It’s a fantastic rod for travel or normal use. I took it on every trip I went on and also use it just about every time I head out on the pier or kayak. It’s sensitive and handles fish very well. I love it!

    Generally alright

    The quality and finish are great. The overall design for The Nomad Xpresscould could use some major improvements. The rod is very stiff and brittle, and as a result all the load is contrasted within the tip section of the rod. These rods will work fine for small fish but if you need more than 10 pounds for drag, or force, will probably break the tip ferrule or tip, as has been my repeated experience. The model I've been using was Ntxi-S-703MH Nomad Xpress. My advice to Okuma would be to incorporate some fiber glass and work on better load distribution with in the rod.
    ProsLight weight, good quality and finish
    ConsVery brittle

    What’s the lure rating for ML
    1 Answer

    Unfortunately Okuma does not provide lure ratings on this series of Nomad Xpress Travel Rods. Best estimate would be around 3/8-1oz based off of similarly spec'd out Okuma inshore rods.

    Will Okuma Ntx S 703MH spinning rod balance well with Shimano Saragosa 8000....or better with 6000 will use 50-65 lb braid..... Travel to Aruba...wide variety of potential fish there..........
    1 Answer
    Given the line you plan on using you'd want to use the Saragosa 8000. However, these rods are going to be too light for a 65 lb. braid application. I would suggest looking at the Nomad Travel Rod model number NT-S-703M-MH.

    Hello, my question is pertaining to the action/power of the Nomad Xpress rods. I will be fishing SW Florida in late March for LM bass up to 30/40lb Tarpon. Would the ML or MH be better suited for the applications? Would the MH be overkill for bass/snook? I'm not looking for the regular nomad series with two tips. Thank you!
    1 Answer
    The ML Okuma Nomad Xpress Inshore Travel Rod would be best suited for the applications.
